First off, I have no idea what I'm doing :)

I've RP'd a tiny bit before, so I know the basics, but never one as detailed as this. Mostly little side games that people put together in a forum not specifically for RP.

I definitely want to play a Nuit, I feel like one would fit my personality pretty much perfectly, but I'm not sure how I'd want to start one. I know on the Nuit wiki page it says that they almost always are created with a dead body by someone skilled at Daek-nuit, but it also mentioned (if I understood correctly) that living beings could become one by drinking enough of a live nuit's ichor. I think I would be interested in being a newly born nuit, as opposed to jumping in as one that has been around a while, so would it be viewed as legitimate/within rules to start off as a different race whose goal from the beginning is to gain immortality, and have him go to Sahova to get the ichor of a nuit? Or is it generally considered in this community that if you want to be a nuit, you start as a nuit and all the "how they're made" details are mostly just backstory information?

That's my main question at the moment, though I have plenty more :) If any friendly vet would be interested in helping me out as I get started I'd be very grateful, just PM me :)

A good idea would be to start off as a Nuit and than thread about you becoming one in Flashback threads, but that's me. :P

Hello and welcome to Mizahar.

Im glad that you have decided on your race. Its one of the many steps in character creation.

To answer your question you may go to Sahova as a human (or any other race. Doesnt matter you all have pulses) and be turned into a nuit there by drinking the Sahovan kool-aid (nuit ichor) or through the ritual process. Though, its harder than it sounds as the undead only turn those they think have potential. So you have to show them that you are wroth keeping around and more useful than a body when you die or more useful than a test subject. Going to Sahova as someone living is hard. There is hardly any food, the nuits forget the livings needs most of the time, and you will be worked till you drop from exhaustion and onwards. Not very pleasant most of the time. So you might be better off starting as a nuit if you wish to go to Sahova.

Now, to get you started off and on the good path I will provide some recommended reading links, this is assuming that you want to have some kind of magic as part of your character build.

Getting Started
http://www.mizahar.com/lore/Mizahar- There are a bunch of useful links in the blue box further down in the article.
http://www.mizahar.com/lore/Starting_Guide- Tells you how to start
http://www.mizahar.com/lore/Rules- Our rules. Know them.
http://www.mizahar.com/lore/Terms_of_Use- Part of our Rules. Know them too to avoid being banned.
http://www.mizahar.com/lore/Starting_package- Character creation and what all goes into it.
http://www.mizahar.com/lore/Character_sheet- Part of chara creation. A public record of your character.
http://www.mizahar.com/forums/character-sheets-f37.html- Where you put your character sheet when its complete.
http://www.mizahar.com/lore/Signature- Rules about signatures. If you want a Signature, please read this.

Also be sure to read the PM that the friendly guy named Admin sent you. Its full of helpful stuff.

Magic
http://www.mizahar.com/lore/Magic- If you want magic as part of your character build PLEASE, I cant stress this enough, read all you can about it including the side links to other articles. Do NOT just read the disciplines. It will not give you a full understanding of how magic works within Mizahar. So its wise to clicky on all the links within that page and THEN go look at the disciplines.

I know I threw a lot at you, but its all necessary to start the game. If you have any questions please post them here, or PM me.

No worries, I had already read most of that before you even posted :)

You gave me a few new ones though, and from them I found plenty more haha

Welcome to the world of nuits!! I have done a couple of nuit creation threads myself (Eva is well known for turning people XD) so if you ever have questions about the process ask away :P. I am free to RP any time just check my calendar :D

Wretched Aura: As a Wretched One Evalin possesses an unnatural aura about her that causes unease in those who get too close. It can come as a prickle of the hair on the back of the neck, a sense of 'wrongness' about her. How people experience it is different depending on their personality and how they handle the unnatural and unknown. Animals tend to become more agitated, more easily sensing how wrong Evalin is and often avoiding contact with her.

Maybe I should just start wherever you are and have my character find you IC ;)

That'd be easier than facing Sahova as a mortal. Would Evalin be willing to turn my character once I make him?
